Mara Wood (Wonder Woman Psychology) demonstrates how using a bibliotherapeutic framework can help middle grade students gain an understanding of the prosocial behaviors Wonder Woman models and how to translate those behaviors into their daily interactions. Whitney Porter (Kent State University) views Emil Ferris's My Favorite Thing Is Monsters through a psychoanalytic feminist lens to consider the protective and reparative abilities of monstrous embodiment in graphic storytelling for women.
